ALL PAWS ON DECK: Necessities for the Nautical Pup

Salty Dog

Land Ho! We’re bringing the yacht in to show you all our newest Nautical Collection. Filled with stripes, anchors and sprinkles of fun, this collection is sure to get you ready to soar the seas!

Nautical apparel is always a must in the summer (or just about any time!). What are our favorites? The Sailor Tank is awesome because it has a sailor collar, while the Nautical Striped Tank adds a cute touch to basic stripes. For a fancy night on the water, we are obsessed with the Nautical Flirt Dress – the skirt has just enough of a poof to make your lil’ diva look like a princess!

Now that you’re dressed to impress, you gotta have some playtime! Tough rubber toys like the buoy and anchor are ideal for the chewer, while a floating toy like the mesh fish is perfect for those that love to play in the water! If your pup is more into shaggy toys, then the hilariously adorable shaggy crab and fish are the perfect treat!

Nautical home décor is an East Coast favorite – why not add a little nautical flair to your home? Bedding, like a nautical boat duvet cover or an anchor print futon, will not only keep your pup nice and comfy, but is sure to add some fun to your home. If you like your dog to eat in style, then the stripes or waves ceramic bowls are ideal. You could even transform these bowls into a cool table centerpiece!

Celebrate your love of anchors, stripes and sails with our Nautical Collection. Check out the rest of the Collection online or stop by one of our three Southern California locations to see it for yourself!

WHAT WE’RE DIGGIN: Toys for Any Pup!

ToySale

Toys are to dogs what makeup is to women: fun and exciting! Whether it be a tough toy, a sassy one or a basic ball, toys not only are fun, but make dogs happy. Because we’re big toy fans, we’ve decided to give you one week of special toy savings: save 30% on 3+ toys from Tuesday, 2/24 to Monday, 3/2!

What cool toys can you save on? We have a plethora of toys for any kind of dog! For the smart dog, we have awesome interactive toys that involve treats like the IQ Treat Ball and the Tornado. Not only do these toys stimulate your dog’s brain, but since you put treats inside, Bowser gets a yummy reward! For the dog that loves to snuggle up to their toys, we have tons of plush toys featuring familiar looking friends like Lamb Chop and soft, yet super squeaky toys like the stuffing-free cat. For the ones that prefer a toy that has a dual purpose (a toy AND something that brings the LOLs), funny toys are a perfect fit, like the Humunga Stache or the Humunga Chomp. Got a power chewer? Extra tough toys like the Tuffies Tug of War toy and the Orbee Ball are ideal!

This is just a taste of the type of toys we have. We also have toys for pups big and small, rubber lovers, or dogs that love to play fetch, too!

WHAT WE’RE DIGGIN’: Beat the Cold Weather Blues

winterchill

Whether you’re in Hawaii or in the East Coast’s Snowpacalpse, it’s COLD! Remember, you’re not the only one that needs to keep warm in the winter – your pup does too! Pups are just as sensitive to the weather as we are (if not more!). Don’t let the cool weather limit Bowser’s activity – go out there and play!

Keep your pup warm in that brisk weather with a fleece jacket or puffer vest! A fleece jacket that’s water resistant has a dual purpose – not only will it keep your dog nice and warm, but the outer shell is made with nylon – perfect for those walks in the rain! If your baby needs warmth over water-resistantance, then our best-seller fleece pullover will do the trick. It comes in an array of colors and is easy to pull on and take off, making it perfect if you need it on in a pinch! If you’re looking more for basic rainwear, then the reversible raincoat is ideal. Because it’s reversible, it’s basically like two raincoats in one! It’s hooded, making it the ultimate cover-up for rainy days. Another great addition to your pup’s winter wardrobe? Boots! Our Ruffwear Summit Trex Boots protect against salt or other snowmelt chemicals as well as protect against extreme temperatures. These boots keep moisture out of the paws and have great traction. It’s a win-win!

Another way to stay warm? Beds and blankets of course! Whether it be a super comfy throw, a cave bed (this could also work as an awesome hide-and-seek bed!) or a roll-up bed for comfort on the go, any type of soft and warm fabric is perfect for the cool weather!

Just because it’s cold and snowy out shouldn’t limit your fun outside. Now that you know how to keep warm, it’s time to go out and play! Check out the rest of our Winter Essentials Collection online or at any of our Muttropolis stores.

MUTT’S UP? Holiday Travel Tips

Dog and Suitcase

It’s our favorite time of the year: the holidays! Bring on the chilly weather, joyous decorations and hometown visits! Whether you’re taking a short road trip or flying across the country, we’ve got some tips on bringing your furry friend along.

When travelling with your pooch, you want to make sure you have all the essentials. First on the checklist: a carrier or car seat. For dogs preparing for a flight, an airline-approved carrier is a must. Airline-approved favorites include the Kelle, Roxy and Charlie carriers. Not only do these carriers come in an array of colors, but they’re complete with multiple pockets to carry all your dog’s travelling needs. Taking a road trip? A car seat is perfect for your dog to rest comfortably during the drive. Car seats like the Companion and Lookout have a space for the seatbelt to attach, ensuring a safe space for your pup to rest.

Now that you know what your dog will be travelling in, it’s time to think about what to pack to keep them nice and happy throughout the trip. We recommend bringing some of your dog’s favorite treats and food along with a travel water bowl to keep them full and hydrated, an extra collar and leash in case of emergencies, extra poop bags for those potty breaks and pet wipes for sanitary purposes. A clean pup is a happy pup, right?! For the toy lover, bringing Bowser’s favorite toy on the journey will not only keep them preoccupied, but will make them feel more comfortable and at home.

Now that you and your pooch are prepared for the holidays, it’s time to take off! Check out more travel needs on our website or visit our three Southern California stores to learn more.

For dogs small to large, we have fun mustache collars to get into the spirit with a variety of styles including the ever popular Color-block Mustache Collar – a Mutt favorite!  Pair it with a matching Mustache-themed engraveable dog tag for the perfect ensemble. The front features a beautiful copper mustache with engraving on the back.

Of course this collection wouldn’t be complete without a toy. Be the talk of the dog park with our Humunga Stache Toy, which comes in a Mini version too. Get two-for-one with this toy – the inside is a rubber ball while the outside of the ball features an epic stache! This toy is sure to get a laugh or two! Our Mustache Collection allows us to bring awareness to a good cause. To check out our collection, go to our website or visit our three Southern California stores.
